Yay!  first project of summer break!  pardon my morphed face...:


I know it looks knitted but it's really tunisian crocheted, using the knit stitch.  The brown edging is single crocheted.  I kind of want to put a brown pompom on top, either hanging or sewn directly to the top.  Opinions?  I suspect that I have a pompom obsession...  Cheesy  The hat is about 1 cm thick so it'll be perfect for winter!  I only have to wait around 6 months!  yippee!!  Also, is there a name for the checkered pattern?  Thanks Kiss

thanks for the comments!

mitchell-b, tunisian knit stitch is really easy to learn.  A lot of sites might say you need a special hook but for the hat, I used a normal one with a rubberband on the end to keep stitches from sliding off.

XXRadCupcake- you should learn to crochet, it's not too hard when you have the ever-so-helpful internet!  plus, if you're stranded on an uninhabited island, you can crochet your own clothes Wink

I love that hat! great colour choices.

I don't know how to crochet either, and it is very frustrating.  I see so many amazing projects on here that I would love to try, but it just isn't going to happen.

If I am ever stranded on an uninhabited island, I am running around naked baby! Well, maybe naked with that hat!  Grin
